Irvine Scientific was established in May 1970 to produce serum products for the cell culture market. From those beginnings, Irvine Scientific emerged and grew to become a respected innovator of cell culture products. Over the years, Irvine Scientific has evolved its products, services, and operations to become multi-disciplined, international in scope and subject matter experts in the area of cell culture media.

In 1987, Japan Energy (JE, a member of Nippon Mining Holdings), acquired Irvine Scientific. With the steady backing of JE (now a member of JX Holdings) Irvine Scientific became a leader in the expanding IVF and biopharmaceutical fields. JE has provided the strength to acquire products like Hana Biologicals, expand operations in California, Europe, and most recently build additional manufacturing capabilities in Japan. The second manufacturing site provides complete redundancy of commercial phase products, which reduces risks of product supply interruption and expertly positions us to serve the emerging markets in Asia.

Today, our diversified products and services benefit both life science and medical customers. Irvine Scientific is proud of its past as an innovator of products that positively touch so many lives. Whether it is developing the highest quality embryo culture media to assist IVF procedures, to supplying high quality media for diagnostics and research, to customizing media for biopharmaceutical production, providing the highest customer satisfaction is our primary goal. We plan to build on this proud history and continue innovating to meet our customer needs.
